Parts are arriving

So I finally started ordering the parts I need for rebuilding my engine. Yesterday I received the new water pump and housing, valve guides, and the piston rings. 


I started to freak out with the piston rings thinking they forgot one until I realized they are in the order they go on the pistons. Sometimes I can be dense.



And more to come. Currently the block is being cleaned and then it will have to go to the machine shop to be honed and decked before we paint it. The carbs are on their way as well as new timing belt covers, oil pump, higher temperature thermostat, timing belt and tensionor, spark plugs, crankshaft bearings, fuel lines (send and receive from front to rear), and some other odds and ends.
